Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Everyone deserves a “wee bit o’Irish luck” at this time of year. You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – if you like to wear green and you enjoy a pint now and then, that’s all the reason you need.

Leprechauns are the mischievous cousins to Santa’s Elves. If you’re lucky enough to catch one you will be rewarded with prosperity, health and endless happiness. I’ve got a dozen of these little guys sitting around looking for a home. If you are interested in one, just drop me an email with your mailing address and I’ll invoice you through PayPal. They’re $20. each, shipping is included. I’ll be shipping by Priority Post on Tuesday morning (February 28th), so let me know.

Want to make something delicious to treat your family and friends . . . here’s an easy cake pop recipe . . . York Peppermint Pattie Cake Pops !

Bake a package white cake and set aside to cool. In the meantime pulse 24 snack size York Peppermint Patties in your food processor and place in a bowl.  When your white cake is almost cool,

crumble it or pulse it in your food processor and add it to the peppermint patties.  Mix well and form into two-bite size balls. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for 20-30 minutes.

Just before you take them out of the freezer, melt some green candy coating in your microwave. Drop a few balls at a time into the candy coating and roll around. Gently lift them out and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Because the balls are cold the coating will set right away. You can go back and add some flourish with swirls and criss-cross patterns.  Enjoy!

    I was thinking of doing something simmilar to this for my sister’s baby shower and had some questions. Do the york patties hold the mix together or does it want to crumble? Did you add frosting to keep it together? If so, what kind? These look sooooo good. XD!!
